         CVE Name        CVE-2013-2264                                       

   Description  When authenticating via SIP with alwaysauthreject enabled,   
                allowguest disabled, and autocreatepeer disabled, Asterisk   
                discloses whether a user exists for INVITE, SUBSCRIBE, and   
                REGISTER transactions in multiple ways.                      

                This information was disclosed:                              

                * when a "407 Proxy Authentication Required" response was    
                sent instead of "401 Unauthorized" response.                 

                * due to the presence or absence of additional tags at the   
                end of "403 Forbidden" such as "(Bad auth)".                 

                * when a "401 Unauthorized" response was sent instead of     
                "403 Forbidden" response after a retransmission.             

                * when retransmissions were sent when a matching peer did    
                not exist, but were not when a matching peer did exist.      

   Resolution  This issue can only be mitigated by upgrading to versions of  
               Asterisk that contain the patch or applying the patch.
